The West Pomeranian region in Poland abounds in wind farms. The diverse landscape is a feature of these areas. Small hills, mounds to the lowlands. The Baltic Sea is nearby. All this creates favorable conditions for the operation of wind turbines. Diversified energy sources help maintain the country’s energy stability and constitute a kind of complement to conventional power plants. Even a short distance from the turbine, the soil can be tilled freely. That is why we see windmills placed in the fields so often. Agricultural land owners also earn their money from leasing.
